Greymont Update from Clive

Hi Greymonter,

It has been a while since I last communicated with you. However,  we have worked right through December and this month attempting to keep Greymont well maintained, neat and tidy. I just wanted to give you breathing room and for you to settle back at work before I sent out this email to you.

This will be the first email among quite a few that I will send out to you especially relating to our upcoming AGM. It concerns mostly the processes and procedures in having a new Executive in place and ratified at our AGM to be held at the beginning of March 2015. It will be either on 10, 11 or 12 March depending on load shedding schedules.

Please continue to email me ( with the street lights, potholes, leaking water meters etc. so that we can report them.Would you also let us know when they have been fixed.

As you can see service delivery was extremely poor during December and now in January with all the Muncipal owned entities (Citypower, City Parks, JRA). The only exception is Pikitup who has given the service delivery that is needed.

We have submitted our 2 petitions ( Fireworks and changing the name of our Park, CVP) to the relevant authorities and they are in the process of being evaluated and assessed. We hope for feedback before the middle of the year.

Thanks for all your good wishes and your financial contributions. During this time we are employing Robert 5 days a week as we never can catch up with all that is needed to be done. Without your regular subs. we wouldn’t be able to do what we are doing. We could do more however! If you are paying R100 per month it translates at being 59% of one day’s wages for Robert. We pay him R170. per day and as with everything, it will need to be increased

If you know of new residents that have moved into Greymont please send me their names or addresses so that we can make contact with them.

Please send us your comments, suggestions or criticisms – it is always welcomed and appreciated.


Kind Regards

Clive P. Malherbe – Chairperson
